After my last post, I discovered a ton more nail art videos. Some of them are far from simple, but like I said, I really LOVE nail art! I obviously need to expand my nail polish collection so I can do some of these (like the Phineas and Ferb ones!!) but for now I guess I can just drool and start a list.
These Powerpuff Girls nails from I Have A Cupcake are a total throwback to my childhood and I love them! They’re super detailed (like most of the nails on this list), but the artist opened my eyes to using acrylic paints instead of polish. I know there’s a lot more colors, and they’re definitely a lot cheaper.
These soda nails actually started my obsession with nail art. They’re the logos from a number of large sodas, and they’re intricate and well done. I wish I had the patience to try them! Maybe I’ll do one.
Water marble is one of my favorite designs, albeit very tedious, and this video has a great technique. I read up on it the first time I did it, and if you don’t want to use tape, putting chap stick on the skin around your nails (and all the way up your fingers) is my preferred method over the tape method. I would definitely suggest looking at a bunch of videos like this one, and this one, and really anything in the “water marble” search results on YouTube. Especially this playlist.
These might be some of the most creative nails I’ve seen. I love it when all of the nails relate to one another, so these Pikachu nails might be happening on my fingers soon.
I found these Phineas and Ferb (Perry!) nails while looking at the penguin nails from my last post. Perry was on her thumb and shown in the video, and I’m really excited to do them when I get the colors. I love Perry!
What are you favorite nail designs? Do you love Perry too? Go watch Phineas and Ferb.
